The woman who donated a pair of curtains to Barnardos which contained a large amount of cash has returned to claim the money.

The woman made the donation to the charity shop last week.

The large sum of cash was tucked in a money bag and pinned inside the lining of the curtains.

The woman has asked not to be identified.

In a statement Barnardos said the “shop team instantly recognised the woman and after she correctly described the curtain pattern are completely satisfied that she is the rightful owner of the cash.”
